Item description for Enriching The Sociological Imagination: How Radical Sociology Changed The Discipline (Studies in Critical Social Sciences, V. 1) by Rhonda F. Levine...
Since the 1960s, radical sociology has had far more influence on mainstream sociology than many observers imagine. This book pairs seminal articles with new reflective essays written by the founders of progressive sociology, including Fred Block, Edna Bonacich, Samuel Bowles, Herbert Gintis, Val Burris, G. William Domhoff, Richard Flacks, Harvey Molotch, Goran Therborn, and Erik Olin Wright.
The book highlights the wider impact of radical sociology and shows how the work of these and other writers has continued to influence sociologys continuing interest in capitalism, class, race, gender, power, and progressive social change. It also describes future directions for a critical sociology relevant to a multicultural and global world.
Contributors: Rhonda Levine, Fred Block , Edna Bonacich, Samuel Bowles, Herbert Gintis, Val Burris, G. William Domhoff, Richard Flacks, Harvey Molotch, Goran Therborn,Erik Olin Wright, and Michael Buraway.
